Stephen Ministry

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2

Are you experiencing pain in your life?

If you’re looking for another Christian to listen to you and walk with you, Stephen Ministry may be the answer. Stephen Ministry is an international and interdenominational one-on-one, distinctively Christian ministry of listening, caring, comforting, prayer, and support offered with total confidentiality by trained lay care-givers called Stephen Ministers.

There is no financial cost.
